tender mercy - an exploration with the inner child

when we finally met 
it felt like I knew you
the ease at which our pain ceased 
in those early days together, 
made way for many possibilities 

later, pain emerged
we caused it in each other, 
worked out our demons,
we drudged up, dragged out
pushed and pulled
there was no ugliness left unloved

then, a kind of softening
a peaceful contentedness
known only by the journey through hardship

now, aligned 
lovingkindness resides 
a place for us both
